I went about 1-2 times per week until after my first child was born when I was 26. Now I go once a day.... I attribute that to exercise, minimum 8 glasses of water per day, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Good living, in other words.

Will's advice is excellent, and I don't have much to add.
What does your stool look like when you poo? Is it shaped kind of like a banana? I know this is sort of a weird thing to ask someone, but that's what they are supposed to look like. If they don't, you might want to talk to a doctor.
I donít know what your over all diet is like but in addition to fiber, you should be eating 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables (at least). If you get more, great. But if you can get in that much, then youíd be on the right track. You also need to be drinking at least 8 cups of water per day. I usually get about 10. More on days when I exercise. Incidentally, Iím going 2-3 times every day.
If you eat enough fruits and veggies and drink enough water, that should do it. If you ARE eating lots of fruits and veggies and drinking plenty of water, you may need to have your colon checked out.

Hey guys, my name is Ashley, and this is silly and kind of embarrassing but at the age of 24 i just found out that we are suppost to go poo everyday! How come poo is a topic that no one talks about? Okay so, I have been going once a week!!! I know, right? I now am on a high fiber deit, which I am fine with, but need some help. Do any of you have any ideas?
